I heard a good report about Wooton, so I made the trek and got there around sunrise. I saw a Fox run into the bushes, and a quick look around suggested there were some birds to be found.
I spent about 2 hours on the lower trail and searching the pond near the river, and got some good results. I suspect there were many more interesting birds than I found, but the foliage gets thick in places, and the birds are quick. I’ll probably go back very soon.
Several Prothonotary Warblers were feeding near the marsh ponds.
I found this Indigo Bunting at Sands Road.
This Orchard Oriole was also at Sands Road.
Wooton is a good place to find Common Yellowthroats.
A few Yellow Rumped Warblers are still lingering.
Two Solitary Sandpipers were feeding in the pond near the river.
These Tree Swallows are preparing to mate.
This is a female Yellow Warbler.
Today’s prize: I have seen only a few Little Blue Herons, and most of them were juveniles. This is my second adult.
